POLITICS: WARNING: VOTING FOR BEDFELLOW MAY CAUSE HERPES

That was the Election-Day headline that sank Senator Bedfellow in the comic strip Bloom County. Will the jury verdit in favor of a convicted drug trafficker who sued Bill Simon's investment firm -- a verdict that's now been reversed after Gray Davis used it to paint Simon as a crook? Unlike Senator Bedfellow, Simon now has two months to set the record straight, although doing so keeps him on the defensive and perpetuates Davis' campaign to run from his own record. I'd still like to know more about this case, which, just from press accounts, sounds like a run-of-the-mill second-guessing-an-investment-gone-bad suit that, if anything, highlights the need for tort reform in plaintiff-friendly California.
